Headlights, hi intensity driving lights, amber fog lights/blinkers, roof lights, tail lights and horn, all operated by a TV remote control.

It took a few days. Note how small that circuit board is compared to the 9V battery to the left on the pic above.
All the LEDs were from Radio Shack.

I just finished some white fog lights on my nsx body and they look sweet! But damn y'all have all kinds of lights LOL.

How long can 2 white LEDs work on 2 AA's?

I'll post pics tomorrow

Depends on the MAH of the batterys.

Mah is how long the battery will last, 1000 mah is longer then 700, etc. Also depends on how large of a light, and or capictor, And OHM of capicitor if you have one.

lol's, I know, I'm confusing, But your best bet would be to,... Run leds to a cap. run cap to 9 volt.

Now, that I'm not positive of, youd have to find someone thats good with this stuff, but if i recall right... Maybe I'm thinking a resisitor.. But if I'm thinking right, the bigger the cap, the less current.

But I'm not sure, so dont go wasten the money on some leds and caps till you know for sure.

It cost me like 5 bucks today at radioshack for a battery holder and some LEDs and they look awesome and that's a lot better then like $50 bucks for the light kits online
